What are your plans for Mother's Day?

Tomorrow in the US (May 9th) will be Mother's Day. Is anyone else not in the US celebrating Mother's Day tomorrow? Not sure what we are going to do yet. I wanted my parents and my in-laws to celebrate it together but not sure that will happen. My mother told me that she doesn't want to go out to eat as it will be crowded. She doesn't want people over her house and she is not really comfortable with coming over my house because of hubby's parents and brother because of this covid thing. I am sure none of them have it but my mom wants to be safe. If we end up doing the celebration at our house, which hubby seemed to wanna do, and my parents end up coming over, my mom told me they will sit with everyone at the table (wearing a mask) and then when it's time to eat she and my dad will eat on the couch away from everyone. I am not a fan of that. I don't want them having to eat on the couch with a plate on their lap. Them eating on the couch would mean being away from the table for a long time. And I don't want that to happen. I want my parents to enjoy themselves and I doubt that will happen in these circumstances. Plus, all this will make me uncomfortable. I'd rather my parents not come over tomorrow. Instead, hubby and I can just meet up with them on a different day to celebrate.
